The design of the Grandstand Stadium features a unique exterior skin pattern that metaphorically evokes the illusion of peering through the foliage of leaves and plays with opacity and translucence, offering glimpses into and out of the stadium.
Fans are drawn into Grandstand from a set of grand staircases to an upper walkway. An expansive view of the campus includes tournament courts, the alleé and the World’s Fair Unisphere. The lower bowl is recessed into the earth creating an intimate tennis experience that highlights the player-fan relationship. New concessions, a picnic area and plazas surround Grandstand Stadium and provide fans with a comfortable, laid-back atmosphere.
